Princess Grace Rose Garden



This rose is growing over the wrought iron archway that frames the entrance to the Princess Grace Memorial Garden.

These are some very good closeups. I enjoy seeing all the sights you have over there. Everything seems so romantic!

Jilly, any more pictures of the garden. The flowers are a delicate yet vivid shade.

Z said...

Are these special roses, named for her or something like that?

I was about to ask the same question but I'm prety sure there is a rose named Princess Grace...though I see her more as a white rose.

Kate, I did take some shots of the whole garden. Also several of individual roses but I plan on going back in about a month when I imagine the garden will be in full bloom. It's only just waking up now. I wanted my first pic of the whole garden to show it as intended.

Z and Angela, I will try and get rose names in future. In fact I did for a few other photos but didn't see a label for this particular one.

Will pay more attention in future.

I love the roses on the trellis. It is quite amazing.

In reply to Z, I was in the garden on Thursday and noticed the 3 beds of roses in front of the statue of the late Princess Grace. The base of the petal is a beautiful pale, pale creamy pink while the border is a rich pink. The rose is called 'Princesse de Monaco', so perhaps this is the rose named for Princesse Grace? Anybody?
